Fare Compare Getaway Maps

Got a specific budget, but not sure where to go with that money??  Compare prices on a world map with fare compare getaway maps!  While the prices are not exactly what you’ll end up paying for a ticket, they allow you to get an idea of where in the world you might be able to go based on the dollars you have to spend.

Just enter the airport you will be leaving from, month you want to travel, and your budget range in the currency you are spending…then voila, up pops your inspiration!  It’s a great way to visually compare your options.  Click the link to play:

You can also do a regular flight search on their main page; though it’s clearly not as fun that way:

LOVE this idea!!! More than 1/2 of my travel planning is done by budget so this is ideal for people like me. So when I get no work done the rest of the day … you know where to find me. Oy!

I love this thing! However, the main problem I’ve found w/ this map is that when there’s a crazy fare sale or fare mistake, the prices are cached in this system.. so even if the sale ends / mistake is corrected, you can drive yourself batty trying to find a deal.. keep clicking through to find prices are 4x higher.. UG. It needs a ‘report as stale data’ button or something.
